Ashton's Fall

When we were at Aunt Barb's house for Thanksgiving, Ashton took a fall off of the skateboard. Thank goodness he didn't need stitches! After cleaning it out, a couple of butterfly bandages did the trick!

Thanksgiving Day

I know that this entry is all about Devin. But it is only because I could never find any of the other boys because they were off playing with cousins the entire time.
Devin and Caleb were hanging out in the ditch, which was empty thank goodness! And over the ditch is the soccer goal.
We when first got to the Bear's Thanksgiving Dinner, Devin would not leave Ashton's side. I guess he was a little shy, we finally got him to go to other people. Ashton and Devin spend alot of time together while the other boys are in school. They are good buddies and Ashton is always looking out for Devin.

Our Sunday Best

I caught the boys after church to snap a quick picture. Needless to say, they weren't very happy with me because they didn't want to stay in their Sunday clothes any longer than I did! And I guess that it is nearly impossible to get all 5 boys looking and smiling in the same direction at one time. I guess a perfect world doesn't exist, but we'll take this one with nothing but smiles!

Ashton's Birthday

Ashton turned 4 on November 7th. He was sooo excited that he is now older! He said that since he is 4, he can now close his eyes during the whole prayer! It's amazing how much one year makes! :)
He wanted a Bob the Builder cake. He didn't like the way I did the mouth originally, so we had to change it to what you see now. After that he was satisfied.
I know it doesn't look like it here, but he loved opening presents. After he would open it, he would look at it, toss it to the side and begin on the next one. He loved every present.

Trip to Schnepf Farms

A.T. Still University hosted a party at Schnepf Farms. It was a lot of fun. It was nice that it was only a mile for us to drive to. We got a wonderful lunch provided and had a chance to ride on all the rides. Here is a picture of the train ride. We rode around the farm and got a good look at everything there is to do.
Here the boys are waiting patiently to ride the train. Even a short wait is a whole lot of fun for this group of boys!
All the boys rode the airplane ride (including Devin). This is Calvin and Caleb ready to go!
Ben took Devin on the roller coaster. I know it's hard to see, but Ben is holding Devin. I don't think Devin or Ashton liked the roller coaster very much. But Calvin loved it! It's a small little roller coaster, but I was impressed! It really had some good dips and turns. I was literally coming out of my seat! Yikes!
Ben took Caleb, Carson and Calvin on this ride. I think that Caleb and Carson like the race track the best. They had little cars that you peddle around a track. Some of the cars had four seats: two in the back that you peddle and two in the front to sit and relax. Ben and I had races with our kids and other families to see who could go the fastest. There was also a carosel that all the boys went on. We all had alot of fun! We stayed longer than Ben and I thought that we would. But all of the boys loved it!

Happy Halloween

The boys dressed up for Halloween several times because of all of the parties. This picture was actually Halloween night. I posted more pictures on my parent's blog and Ben's parent's blog.
They got so much candy, it is ridiculous! So to prevent myself from picking up candy wrappers all the time we have a new rule. For each candy wrapper that I pick up, I get to take one of their candies and put in my own bowl. Boy! I have never seen a bunch of boys so eager to clean up garbage even the neighbor kids were helping!
